Henderson Cemetery

Henderson Township, Knox County, Illinois

As you all know working on genealogy is always a work in progress. Have the cemetery listings for everyone buried here and over half the photos will be putting the photos online but they will not be able to be copied as we have some people amongst us who will take our work and make it theirs for all time.... Boo Hoo & Shame on them.  If you would like a copy of any of the pictures in the cemetery feel free to email me.  Would gladly send you a copy only cost is 15 cents for photo paper and then the postage for mailing them. Thanks and Have a fantastic Day....
